“This sheriff loves his job”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

The tour was was almost 2 hours long and full of fun ghost stories. The sheriff "Guy White" took his role very seriously and interacted with everyone equally, although the women could have done without the lesbian ghost "Sally" choosing the most beautiful woman in the group at the end of the tour. All in all it was a fun way the spend a few hours. I really wasn't interested in listening to the sheriffs dreams of his future endeavors as the writer, producer, filmmaker of his own full length feature film. Good job sheriff, we will recommend your tour.

“great second time too”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

We did the sheriff's tour for the second time and enjoyed it as much or more than the first time. He is so educated on the things he talkes about and keeps it real and also funny at times. He should have been an actor--but wait he is. He has made a short movie and is now working in a full length one. See the short one on his web site. Great tour--will do again.

“The Sheriff is THE walking tour to take.”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

"You know whaaaaat?" Sheriff's Ghost walk Tours is the best walking ghost and history tour in St. Augustine. My girlfriend and I have been on a couple of different walking ghost tours from other companies in St. Augustine, so this review comes from first hand comparisons.

The Sheriff leads the group as newly appointed deputies through the old city in a well prepared, comical, and educational way, both as your guide and in character as the town's "ghost" sheriff from long ago.

His tour is scripted and well-timed but he also has the ability to adlib and tailors the tour to the specific audience in front of him. It's a cross between a performance and a tour. It is all out enjoyable.

He gave everyone in the group a little personal attention, whether to include them in on a story or give them an unexpected scare which usually elicited a scream from the unsuspecting patron.

This is a great tour for those interested in either ghost stories or history.

Sheriff Don has a unique blend of professionalism, passion, and sense of humor that can't be faked. We would go again and highly recommend it to anyone interested in a unique and comprehensive walking tour.

Also the price, 15 dollars per/person, is probably the most reasonably priced tour in town. I've paid much more for much less.

“An enjoyable (humorous) time!”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

My boyfriend and I went on the Sheriff's tour Saturday night (it was cold)! The Sheriff did a great job: It was well researched, well scripted, and pretty funny at some points. We hope that his movie deal goes well, and good luck!
I would definitely recommend this to anyone travelling to St. Augustine, any age.

“Sheriffs Ghost Tour”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

We are visiting Orlando from Canada and we decided to go to St. Augustine for a couple of days, as we heard it was a fun and interesting place to visit. While there we decided to do a ghost tour. My husband wasn't big on going but we thought we would give it a try...sounded like fun. We did Sheriff Don's tour and we had a great time. His tour is informative with lots of history, we went to several places known to be haunted and he gave us full details on the story and background of each haunting. He makes his tour not only fun, but he keeps you on your toes at the same time! Beware...you never know when he is gonna scare the crap out of you!! : ) For the $15.00 per person, it was well worth the money and time. Very entertaining...thanks again Sheriff Don!! Oh BTW...we researched each Ghost Tour in the city and spoke with many venders and people and they all said the same thing..."The Sheriffs Ghost Tour was the BEST in the city" Enjoy!
